Because of its sweet, fresh scent, Mandarin is uplifting and can help soothe nervous tension and sadness when diffused. It is a main ingredient of one of our most popular children’s blends, Calming the Child.
Dilute 3 drops mandarin in 2 teaspoons of lotion or carrier oil and use after your child’s bath or when settling them in bed at night to relax before sleep. The combination of mother’s touch and the soothing blend should have your child zzzzzing before long.
